Maimanagi holds female art exhibition
 As we all know that art is one of the basic and fundamental phenomena and show our country’s national identification and civilizations, fortunately, Afghanistan government is planning, encouraging and supporting effective programs for further development of education, culture and art. Thus, the first women art works exhibition was launched by Ghulam Mohammad Maimanagi Art Education Department in cooperation with National Gallery and Bagh-e-Sulh in Kabul.
Sayed Mohammad Sabir Hashimi, head of the department has told The Kabul Times correspondent, “Gulam Mohammad Maimanagi Art Education Department is tasked to make efforts towards implementation of goals and policies of the government by creating new ways and strategies in art sector. 
Related to the first women art works exhibition, Hashimi said, “Women art works exhibition was held based on demand of young women of Ghulam Mohammad Maimanagi Art Department and consideration of MoIC and provided a good opportunity for women to introduce art of Afghanistan as well as help and encourage women to further work in this field.”
“In the exhibition titled ‘paintings of young women team’ and held on the occasion of Afghanistan Independence Day, 71 art works were put for exhibition and the exhibition was a successful initiative for strengthening and enriching art talents of the country’s youth,” Hashim added.
“My message to all art-loving colleagues and students of this land is to encourage those youth who are very interested in art besides doing other jobs to learn it and my suggestion in connection with further identification of our country is to hold such exhibitions in foreign countries,” said Hashimi, asking relevant officials to pay necessary attention in this regard.
Art is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author’s imaginative or technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power. In their most general form these activities include the production of works of art, the criticism of art, the study of the history of art, and the aesthetic dissemination of art.
The Gallery of Ghulam Mohammad Maimanagi Traditional and Fine Arts School displays work by staff and students of the School and by other artists. It is also available by arrangement for visiting exhibitions.
Maryam Naeemi, graduating from engineering faculty and currently learning painting in Ghulam Mohammad Maimanagi Art Education Department said, “I’ve been receiving painting-related studies in the respective department for the past one year and half and we  young-women team with cooperation of the department and its teachers launched an exhibition in order to further develop our art and cultural talents.”
At the end, she hoped that further facilities would be provided to young women to put their works in exhibition and such women art works exhibition should be not only held in Kabul but also in foreign countries so that Afghanistan culture and art would be further introduced as well as the Afghan women art works would be sold in a good price.  
It is worth mentioning that Ghulam Mohammad Maimanagi Art Education Department has held various art works exhibition during the past few years in Kabul, capital city of the country and currently providing various art trainings to art-loving youth in art, painting, calligraphy, sewing  and computer learning.
